The schema should be stored as an XML type value in a table with a unique identifier associated with it. When invoking this method, you can join the schema table and specify the schema by its unique identifier in the WHERE clause.
If schema is composed of a single schema document (the schema document does not include or import another schema document), you can pass the schema document as an XML type value to this method.
If schema consists of more than one document, then do the following:
- Use the Schema and Stylesheet Consolidation utility to consolidate the schema document.
- Pass the consolidated schema document as an XML type value to this method.
